Infertility: Viability & Dating Ultrasound #2

It took a long time to get here, and I am not just talking about the 2 and a half week wait for this appointment.  I am talking about the over ten years we have waited to have a beautiful, healthy baby. I worked from home this day, so that I could prepare for whatever…

Infertility: Intake Appointment

For the next two weeks my emotions were all over the place.  Jon tried to reassure me that we couldn’t think the worst, that we had to try and stay positive.  Luckily I had a work trip to keep me occupied for a little while, and then a few days of fun in Vegas helped…

Marriage: Compromise (Fundamentals Series)

I think we have all heard the saying that goes a little something like this… I have found the one who completes me.  I like to use the analogy of puzzle pieces when thinking of  relationships.  Somewhere out there in the world is your matching piece, the one whose piece fits almost perfectly with your…

Life: One Year Blogging Anniversary

I never thought I was a writer.  In fact, I dreaded writing throughout school.  I could never figure out how to fluff the content to get the required length, and it honestly felt like a chore.  However, as we started through this infertility journey, I found myself needing an outlet.  I knew I wanted to…

Cooking: Matcha Tea Latte (Keto Style)

I can’t take credit for finding this delicious Matcha MCT Oil Powder by Perfect Keto.  The credit goes to my sister, who found this shortly after starting her own keto journey.  When she told me about this I knew I had to get it and so I did.  Once it came in I knew I…
